About the Kuba Collection
These one-of-a-kind bucket hats by Heather Davis derive their inspiration from the 17th-century cloth designs of the Kuba kingdom in central Africa. Now the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Kuba kingdom, founded by Shyaam a-Mbul in 1625, is noted for its highly developed political system. The kingdom gained wealth by controlling the ivory and rubber trades, and commissioning artists for sculpture, basketry, and textiles. Kuba cloth became a primary cultural export of this bustling society and is characterized by bold, graphic black patterns that emphasize movement and repeated themes, as well as irregularities between sections, which are reminders that an artist’s hand crafted each stitch.
